There are certain events that we can expect from every Vanderpump Rules season. We get Gay Pride, a Mexico trip, and Stassi Schroeder’s birthday. There’s also World Dog Day, which Lisa Vanderpump hosted and some of the Pump Rules cast attended.
However, as expected, zero Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were in attendance. Not even flip-flopper Camille Grammer or one and done Joyce Giraud, the sole RHOBH cast member Lisa seems to be close with. Thankfully, Lisa’s husband Ken Todd and some Vanderpump Rules were there to support. However, there were still some notable names missing.
The viewers can count on the Vanderpump Rules cast to take a trip to Mexico every season. Other than that, the Bravolebrities keep their travels to the United States. Or at least they do when they’re filming the show.
However, the ladies in the cast took their travel to Real Housewives levels when they visited Paris, France. Well, almost all of the Vanderpump Rules ladies. Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, Lala Kent, and Katie Maloney all went to Paris
in Fofty’s private jet. But, where were the other ladies in the cast?
I’m having a visceral reaction to part 2 of the Vanderpump Rules reunion. It’s like Lord Of The Flies. James Kennedy is the pig they’re chasing across the island of the doomed until somebody, (probably Tom 2 if we’re being honest) winds up dismembered. Remember when this show was so fun?!
What I’ve come to realize is that these people – chiefly Katie Maloney, Jax Taylor, and Kristen Doute – live in an echo chamber of their own delusions. They can’t learn from experiences because they’ve blocked all the dissenting voices. Instead, they are deafened by the vortex of praise they offer each other. James isn’t even allowed to speak without Kristen cutting him off and screaming him down with some accusation or insult. Andy Cohen wonders why James so angry. Lisa Vanderpump decides it’s because James had a drink at lunch. Or maybe it’s as James said: so many people yelling at him constantly that he can’t breathe.
Finally the moment we’ve all be waiting for on Vanderpump Rules — at least, I hope — because on part 2 of the reunion Lisa Vanderpump will confront Katie Maloney about
being a horrible human being the ultimatum Katie gave her about firing James Kennedy.
It is my hope that Lisa will question Katie on why SHE Is the only person allowed to say awful, heinous things about her co-workers, while facing no consequences for creating a hostile work environment. Like remember when Katie was running around telling everyone Lala Kent was a prostitute and a home wrecking whore?
Last night was the Met Gala and also someone was thrown out of a PTA meeting at my kids’ school when things erupted into a full-on screaming match. Fittingly, it was also part 1 of Vanderpump Rules reunion – so yeah, busy night!
Also as if trying to straddle two events, like she straddles two worlds on Vanderpump Rules, Raquel Leviss‘s reunion dress was the very definition of the Met Gala theme “Camp,” boasting uber-exaggerated shoulders accented by a full duvet of ruffles. It was like a super amped up version of an Alice In Wonderland dress. I loved it. It was almost a perfect representation for the ridiculousness of this show. Raquel came to make a statement that she is here to stay.
It has been a wild roller coaster of a ride lately for Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent. Sadly, Lala’s father passed away in April of 2018. This devastated Lala and had an enormous effect on Lala’s well-being. She raged against James Kennedy, his girlfriend Raquel Leviss, and Billie Lee during a brunch at Sur. So, what was the cause? Raquel mentioned Lala’s father. And Lala just can’t stand James.
Lala stopped drinking because of a pact that she made with her fiancé Randall Emmett, which was odd since she was taking her co-stars to Solvang to tour vineyards. Lala’s situation was much worse than everyone thought, and Lala admitted that she has an addiction to alcohol. Lala recently celebrated six months of sobriety, and credits AA with saving her life.
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away a foolish princess sat in her WeHo walkup, and pledged her love to Jax Taylor, a pile of mashed potatoes that sometimes took on human-esque features and pretended to have a heart, but mostly just oozed brown puss. This princess of purgatory is Brittany Cartwright and on last night’s Vanderpump Rules she had an engagement party
This party seemed like it was supposed to be a wedding, until producers decided to drag out the drama by turning it into an engagement party last minute. Like they expected a huge blowout where Brittany’s dad confronted her about what an insipid ass Jax is. Or Jax and the Toms got in a fight with Brittany’s brothers. Instead, the biggest drama was Scheana Marie crying in a corner because Adam Spott rejected her adopt-a-penguin apology gift.
Also Ariana Madix nervously confronted Lisa Vanderpump‘s about treating the Toms like grownups because then, like, maybe they might, like, act, like, one. Or Tom 1 will at least.
Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent has been all over the map this season. Her emotions have been spinning wildly, and not even a swig from her baby bottle can help Lala calm down. Our favorite SUR hostess has been in a dark place since the death of her beloved father.
Lala melted down in spectacular fashion at SUR, after Raquel Leviss mentioned Lala’s father. Lala raged at Raquel and Billie Lee. She also saved some choice insults for former friend James Kennedy and let him know how lucky he is to have hooked up with her. Sigh. Best of all, Lala was sporting a dress suspiciously like the green Versace that Jennifer Lopez wore to the Grammys– only not as cool.
